Chili Recipe

Chili Recipe...Who doesn't like a warm bowl of chili on a cool fall day? Of course it is not so cool outside but I always have room for chili in my kitchen! I make my chili in the pressure cooker but I will post alternate directions for those who use the stove top.

Classic Chili Recipe

1 large can of chili beans, undrained
1 small can of kidney beans, undrained
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 can  tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes, unsalted
1 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon of Pepper blend spice mix (if you do not have on hand, use a pinch of cayenne, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon paprika)
1 Tablespoon of Cumin
Olive oil

In a large pot, heat oil until hot and add onions. Saute for about 2 minutes on medium/high heat. Add garlic and mushrooms to the party and continue heating for another 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook on medium/low heat for about an hour. Stir on occasion.

If cooking in pressure cooker, saute your veggie in oil with "brown" mode. Turn off browning mode and then set cooker on high for 10 minutes.

For all of my meat loving fans, simply add 1 lb of ground beef to the party during the onion saute session. Make sure to drain the grease though. Too much can ruin the chili.

Serve with tortilla or corn chips, cheese, sour cream, salsa, cornbread, crackers...whew you name it! :D
